In the guest lecture “We are all Treaty People”, Claire Kreuger discusses the topics on why we should teach Treaty Education and how to do so. As teachers, we should teach Treaty Education because it is our job, it provides students with a sense of history and place, and builds new relationships.
Many teachers feel uncomfortable when it comes to teaching Treaty Education because they are not very knowledgable about treaties, and have never experienced a Treaty Education class themselves. When teaching Treaty Education, it is difficult to find age- appropriate materials to use and figure out ways to integrate it into the curriculum.
Kreuger describes her experiences with introducing Treaty Education into her classroom and the barriers that she came across as an educator. She has provided us future teachers with knowledgable experiences and resources that we can use in our classrooms, which engages children and provides an insightful learning experience.
